Amongst many things (music, football, friendly people), Manchester is renowned for its street art/graffiti subculture.
For the longest time, graffiti has always been a part of the Mancunian landscape, whether you want it there or not.
Within the past 15-20 years, we’ve seen a surge in street art in the city, mostly concentrated in the artistic boroughs (NQ, Didsbury etc). It’s always a pleasant surprise when you’re strolling through town to discover a new mural has appeared, stopping you in your tracks to stand and admire it for a moment.
You can now browse the city’s street art both new and old in the comfort of your living room with a new book.
The title of the book Manchester Street Art: Murals & Mosaics by Eddie Taiwo is a collection of over 200 images Eddie collected over the years.
“I created this book as a way of giving representation to artists who may not be able to have their works displayed in prominent art galleries, which can at times be a closed and exclusive community.
The street itself is a gallery and I hope this book helps readers to acknowledge that some of the UK’s best street artists are from or reside here.” Eddie states.
